Wrap you up in a coat of cobwebs, tactile little heart of tacks
The more you lick, the more I chap
You've a head like a postcard rack

So try this trick and spin it
Spin again, my Surfer Rosa
All the while the world is whirling
The morning tilts closer

Your eyelids keep secrets
Your eyelids keep secrets
My soft and deep
While you sleep
no, no secrets

Blowing bubbles with nicotine gum
Kiss me below the seatbelt line
On the roof with a toothpick flag
Take your broken wings and learn to sigh

In the half life of balloons
We will measure how our hairs grow
We lie curled like question marks
Drifting off on pheromones

Your eyelids keep secrets
Your eyelids keep secrets
My soft and deep
I creep, I creep with the grace of an ice cream truck
Ever I'll watch you sleep
Beneath a blanket of dust, I'll tuck you in
My soft and deep
No, no secrets

So try this trick and spin it
Spin again, my Surfer Rosa
All the while the world is whirling
The morning tilted closer

My soft and deep
My soft and deep
My Soft and deep
I creep, I creep with the grace of an ice cream truck
Ever wrought, you sleep
Beneath a blanket of dust, I'll tuck you in
My soft and deep
No, no secrets

Deep.

    TranslationI don't know anything factually, but I think I've put together the gist of a song about a man falling in love with a depressed girl. Mostly assumed from my own meandering experiences in life and listening to the Matches for longer then I care to admit.

    Wrap you up in a coat of cobwebs, tactile little heart of tacks - the girl wears her heart on her sleeve and it's been punctured a few times, I offer some weak encouragement.
    The more you lick, the more I chap - they kiss allot
    You've a head like a postcard rack - but she kisses many people

    So try this trick and spin it
    Spin again, my Surfer Rosa
    All the while the world is whirling
    The morning tilts closer - we listened to the Pixies all night

    Your eyelids keep secrets
    Your eyelids keep secrets - there's something your not telling me
    My soft and deep - she's gentle but "deep" or mysterious
    While you sleep
    no, no secrets - I don't like secrets

    (total guess this one)
    Blowing bubbles with nicotine gum - living on the edge
    Kiss me below the seatbelt line - she gives me a present :D
    On the roof with a toothpick flag - I'm so happy I'd wave a little flag from the rooftops
    Take your broken wings and learn to sigh - but I still wish you'd learn to accept the good with the bad


    In the half life of balloons - we take some Laughing gas
    We will measure how our hairs grow - natural opiate rushes are awesome
    We lie curled like question marks - natural opiate rushes are really awesome
    Drifting off on pheromones - especially when we're together

    I creep, I creep with the grace of an ice cream truck - lol, ever tried to go to the loo at night without waking your GF? cannot be done!
    Ever I'll watch you sleep
    Beneath a blanket of dust, I'll tuck you in - there's not much I can do but I'll try (ref. to some nice gesture I guess)
    My soft and deep
    No, no secrets

    I creep, I creep with the grace of an ice cream truck
    Ever wrought, you sleep - Wrought: (of metals) beaten out or shaped by hammering.
    Beneath a blanket of dust, I'll tuck you in

    General Commentfirst off, Im pretty sure it says "the more you lick the more I chap", "you've a head like a post card rack", "we lie curled like question marks" and "kiss me below the seatbelt light" Im pretty sure thats what the bands guitar tech said.

    one of my favorite lines would have to be "In the half life of balloons
    We will measure how our hairs grow" I think of the balloon representing childhood, and either meaning they will grow older, but still always be like kids, or, kind of like how a balloon deflates after some time, measuring age strictly on how much kid they have left in them. I'm not sure how much sense any of that made, haha.

    General Commenti've always pictured a girl sleeping with her eyes wide open.
    your eyelids keep secrets.. when you sleep, no no secrets.

    General Commenti always pictured a person dead
    "Ever I'll watch you sleep
    Beneath a blanket of dust, I'll tuck you in
    My soft and deep
    No, no secrets"

    and i thought he murdered her because of a secret affair or something
    because of the nicotine gum and "kiss me below to seatbelt line" line

    he did it because she was two faced and going to talk
    "tactile little heart of tacks
    The more you lick, the more I chap
    You've a head like a postcard rack"

    and then the pheromones part can also like she sending signals to others or i dunno crap...

    General Commentwhat about the story of a deprived old (half life of balloons) perv (i creep with the grace of an ice cream truck) that's got this fixation (ever i'll watch you sleep) on a girl at a bar one night, drugged her drink (all the while the world is whirling), and took her home, to enjoy his "soft and deep".... if you know what i mean, but whatever, everyone sees different shit so have fun!
